BERKELEY – California junior guard Brittany Boyd is one of 29 players named to the Nancy Lieberman Award watch list, the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame announced Wednesday.

The award recognizes the top point guard in women's NCAA Division I college basketball. Candidates exhibit the floor leadership, play-making and ball-handling skills of Hall of Famer Nancy Lieberman.

The list will be narrowed down to a final 20 candidates in February, with a final five to be decided by March. The Lieberman Award winner will be announced during Final Four weekend activities in April.

Boyd, who has earlier this season been named to the Wade Trophy (WBCA), Wooden Award (Los Angeles Athletic Club) and Naismith Trophy (Atlanta Tip-Off Club) watch lists, is averaging 13.1 points, 6.2 rebounds, 5.5 assists and 3.47 steals per game for the No. 15 Golden Bears. Her 3.47 steals per game ranks second in the NCAA, and the number increases to a stellar 4.0 steals per game in conference play to go with 19.8 points in Cal’s four Pac-12 games.
